During severe weather events, gasoline may be scarce and traffic can be unfavorable.

GasBuddy is a free smartphone app and website that connects drivers to places to fill up. A map of crowdsourced data provides drivers with the information they need to find gasoline for their travel. The app can be found in the App Store for iPhones and Google Play for Android.

The free FL511 app, phone service and website provides real-time traffic information and urgent alerts for the state of Florida. On your mobile phone, dial 511 and follow the prompts. The information, primarily provided by Florida Department of Transportation, will help you find the most efficient route to your destination. The app can be found in the App Store and Google Play.  

GasBuddy and FL511 are not services provided by Collier County, and Collier County cannot guarantee the accuracy of these apps.
